About Business

The Doral-On-The-Ocean opened in 1963 on the famous Millionaire's Row, on Collins Avenue in Miami Beach, Florida. Also known as the Doral Beach Hotel, it was named for its founder and his wife, DORis and AL Kaskel. It was long considered the most elegant and luxurious hotel in the area. The Doral won several of the coveted Mobil Five Star awards. The hotel hosted the headquarters of George McGovern during the 1972 Democratic National Convention. It was the sister hotel to the Doral Country Club, where the Doral Open was played until 2006. The Doral was home away from home for movie stars and presidents.
Several scenes from the 1972 hit film The Heartbreak Kid were shot on location at the hotel. The movie shows extensive footage of the lobby, room 1704, the pool area and beach. There is also a short clip that was shot in the bar adjacent to the Starlight Roof restaurant on the 18th floor of the hotel.
In the 1990s the Doral changed hands several times. It was first purchased from the original family in the early 1990s by a French company and renamed the Doral Ocean Beach Resort. The French OBR company then sold it to Interstate Hotels in 1997 and it briefly became a Westin.
